“Holiday,” he told Liverpool’s official website. “(The) Champions League final with Dortmund, I was invited, so we will watch that.

“It’s not that I tried much (before going on vacation), so I didn’t have time. I had time, but for me, summer vacation, at least at the end of the season, was like finding the first available deck chair and having a phone here and talking to agents, sports directors, stuff like that.

“I didn’t have any training sessions, yes, but the rest was still going on. So that means I haven’t seen 1% of the world for nothing.

“Now we won’t do anything, we’ll watch the Euros here and there, (I’m) really looking forward to it, then a holiday of doing nothing, then the plan is to start traveling and see how it goes .”

Klopp is expected to spend more time with his wife Ulla, with the couple splitting their commitments between their villa in Mallorca and their return to Germany.

“People ask me: ‘What do you (want to do?)’. I just don’t know. I’ve never had it, so let’s try it and then I’ll tell you.
